There are few gifts greater than the gift of parenthood.
The Donation Procedure

3. Start on Birth Control Pills

Two to four weeks before the donation cycle begins both the donor and the recipient are placed on birth control pills in order to synchronize their menstrual cycles. 

When the eggs are retrieved from the donor, fertilized and transferred to the recipient as embryos the recipient needs to be mid-cycle so that her uterine lining is at its thickest so that the embryo will implant.
